Believing in miracles, having faith it will all work out…
So I am back up and walking again 🙂 As someone once said it’s going to be okay and it is. After some adjustments, I am somewhat back to normal but as I recall these adjustments take a while! I am just happy that I am able to walk again, I am happy that I was able to go to the gym with my dad and walk with him on the treadmill.
I am most happiest that Yoga, Pilates, short runs and Bootcamp are my new best friends. Someone said to me you know you are going to get the itch again to run long distances and I can truly say I learned so much from this experience. I learned 2 half marathons in 2 weeks is much for anybody able bodied or not. What it took me almost 8 years to remember is that I truly have a gift so why I am abusing it? My DBS is my super power to inspire others, so why would I give that away?
I will still keep on blogging because despite my blog being called “Run Carrie Run”; I will still be running short distances but most of all I learned that people read my blog to be inspired, to not give up, to keep on trying and to know that living with Dystonia is not a death sentence…and quite honestly there are days when I want to give up ….and then I read my blog and remind myself how far I have come and how much left I have to go…So as my new saying goes life is not a sprint it’s a 10K and I am truly, truly lucky that things are slowly getting better and hoping to be 100% soon! And I will still call myself a runner, just a retired one!
Thank you everyone for helping me through the last several days!
